By Javier Fuller

There is no direct correlation between yoga as remedial measure and cancer. However Yoga has proved its efficacy in easing the stress and trauma that a cancer patient undergoes. Yoga could be even adopted as a preventive measure against cancer. Since Yoga happens to be a natural healer of damaged cells and tissues, it is considered to prevent cells from getting cancerous.

Regular Yoga practices tend to increase tissues capacity to overcome inner damages. Once you get this increased ability of resilience through yoga, you are less likely to fall prey to cancer. By enhancing your body's overall capacity to fight diseases, it furthermore lessens possibility of severe maladies like cancer. Yoga has also been proved to be a direct combatant against cancer as it restricts growth of cancerous cells. By doing so, yoga happens to increase longevity of patients.
